dear expectant mother
We can’t imagine how difficult this decision is for you, as you are probably experiencing an overwhelming amount of emotions. Thank you for considering us as a potential adoptive parents. If we are chosen, your baby will know the sacrifice you are making.
In our hearts, we want to raise a strong, warm, and kind-hearted individual. We will provide a home where love, Christian values, and education are the center of all we do. Our home will be filled with books, music, laughter, conversation, and a multitude of opportunities. We hope you will be able to rest easier knowing that your baby will be going to a safe home with loving parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who have also been adopted into our family.
This opportunity to adopt your baby would be a miracle, and we will forever cherish you and the baby. We hope our words have reassured you, and we will be anxiously awaiting your decision.
We live in Illinois, where Chris is a manager at a fulfillment center twenty-five minutes from our home. Heather received her degree as an occupational therapy assistant and is in the process of getting her license to practice. We met in a very unconventional way: Heather was in need of a liver transplant due to an autoimmune disease, and Chris overheard a fellow coworker speaking about how she was in need of the transplant. Chris decided to get tested and found out he was a perfect match! Chris donated 55% of his liver to Heather and saved her life. Besides the unbelievable bond as it was, Heather and Chris fell in love and got married the following year. We both love to cook, take our dogs for walks, watch Netflix, and spend time at Heather’s parents’ cottage in Michigan.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in a quiet suburb. Our big yard is fenced-in for safety, and it’s where our two dogs, Linus and Dory, love to play. We have wonderful neighbors that have young children, and there is a park right around the corner from our house as well as a larger one down the street. We live in a great school district, and the elementary school Heather attended as a child is only block away from us.
Our Extended Family
Heather and Chris have a very close-knit, loving, and supportive family. Heather’s parents and younger sister live five minutes away, and the rest of her family all live within 15 minutes of each other. We are always getting together, whether it’s grabbing lunch, going shopping, or meeting at Heather’s grandparents’ house for a fun afternoon. Heather’s parents have a cottage in Michigan, and she cannot wait to create more memories there with the baby as her parents and grandparents did with her. Going fishing, making bonfires, playing cards, going for a boat ride, watching the leaves change color, and spending quality time with family are just a few things we want your baby to experience.
Chris’s parents live thirty minutes away, and Chris has three brothers. The oldest lives in South Carolina; the second oldest lives about one hour away, in Indiana; and the third lives about one-and-a-half hours away, in Illinois. We get together as much as possible and always on major holidays.
Both of our parents are so excited and supportive of our decision about adoption and cannot wait to babysit! Your baby will have an unending support system and lots of love from both sides.
What Led Us To Adoption
We started having the conversation about adopting a baby before we even got married. Since we have been married for over two years now, we felt the time was right to start exploring our options. Heather has experience with adoption right in her own family, as she has cousins who were adopted from all over the world. We see how wonderful their lives have been since they entered our loving family, and we can see the love and types of opportunities they have experienced as a result of their adoption. Because of this, we would love to adopt a baby and give him or her all of the love and opportunities that may not be possible otherwise.

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
